Darwin College was opened in 1970 and incorporated student bedrooms, and complimentary facilities.
As part of an ongoing programme to upgrade facilities Cornish Architects have reconfigured and refurbished the accommodation to create 32 student kitchen/dining facilities, refurbishment of 310 bedrooms in 62 flats, reception, central circulation core and access corridors. The scope of the work extended to the renovation of two lecture theatres and to improve the facility generally to suit the needs of people with disabilities. The work was planned and executed whilst the building was in occupation.
